EM-Synchrony

Blog post: Untangling Evented Code with Ruby Fibers

Collection of convenience classes and patches to common EventMachine clients to make them Fiber aware and friendly. Word of warning: even though fibers have been backported to Ruby 1.8.x, these classes assume Ruby 1.9 (if you're using fibers in production, you should be on 1.9 anyway)

Features:

  • Fiber aware connection pool with sync/async query support
  • Multi request interface which accepts any callback enabled client
  • Fibered iterator to allow concurrency control & mixing of sync / async
  • em-http-request: .get, etc are synchronous, while .aget, etc are async
  • em-mysqlplus: .query is synchronous, while .aquery is async
  • remcached: .get, etc, and .multi_* methods are synchronous
  • em-mongo: .find, .first are synchronous
  • bitly v2 and v3: synchronous api calls with EM::HttpRequest.

Example with async em-http client:

require "em-synchrony/em-http"
EventMachine.synchrony do
    res = EventMachine::HttpRequest.new("http://www.postrank.com").get
    p "Look ma, no callbacks!"
    p res

    EventMachine.stop
end

EM Iterator & mixing sync / async code

require "em-synchrony/em-http"
EM.synchrony do
    concurrency = 2
    urls = ['http://url.1.com', 'http://url2.com']

    # iterator will execute async blocks until completion, .each, .inject also work!
    results = EM::Synchrony::Iterator.new(urls, concurrency).map do |url, iter|

        # fire async requests, on completion advance the iterator
        http = EventMachine::HttpRequest.new(url).aget
        http.callback { iter.return(http) }
    end

    p results # all completed requests
    EventMachine.stop
end

Example connection pool shared by a fiber:

require "em-synchrony/em-mysqlplus"
EventMachine.synchrony do
    db = EventMachine::Synchrony::ConnectionPool.new(size: 2) do
        EventMachine::MySQL.new(host: "localhost")
    end

    multi = EventMachine::Synchrony::Multi.new
    multi.add :a, db.aquery("select sleep(1)")
    multi.add :b, db.aquery("select sleep(1)")
    res = multi.perform

    p "Look ma, no callbacks, and parallel MySQL requests!"
    p res

    EventMachine.stop
end

Example with multi-request async em-http client:

require "em-synchrony/em-http"
EventMachine.synchrony do
    multi = EventMachine::Synchrony::Multi.new
    multi.add :a, EventMachine::HttpRequest.new("http://www.postrank.com").aget
    multi.add :b, EventMachine::HttpRequest.new("http://www.postrank.com").apost
    res = multi.perform

    p "Look ma, no callbacks, and parallel HTTP requests!"
    p res

    EventMachine.stop
end
